Our Locals' Tip: The Cafès tradition in Vienna goes back to the imperial times - you absolutely MUST try at least one of them during your visit! The Cafe Central or Cafe Landtmann are two of the most famous and visited ones by locals and visitors alike.
The unique thing about the Wiener Kaffeehaus is the "laissez faire" attitude the waiters and the customers have towards each other. A cup of coffee with the obligatory glass of water will be served to you and, no matter how long you stay and how much you consume - you will never have the feeling of being unwelcome. Viennese love that - so they use the cafes as their extended living room, the constantly go there to read, chat or meet.
This is why the cafes are so popular here. You can find plenty of them around, some more traditional, some more touristy - check our restaurant section to get an idea what awaits you. There is a choice for everybody!
